THQ Nordic has announced the return of another classic title. They’ve announced that de Blob is coming to Nintendo Switch later in 2018.

The often forgotten or looked over classic is set to take a second swing at the market with a remastered version of the Wii title. THQ Nordic takes the role of publisher, while BlitWorks once again works on the development of the port.

The announcement comes via THQ Nordic’s own blog p which describes the game for those who haven’t had the chance to play it.

The evil I.N.K.T. Corporation has declared ‘Color is a Crime!’ and leeched Chroma City of all its beauty and interest. The race to rescue Chroma City has just begun, and only de Blob can save the world from a black-and-white future with his unique abilities to color the world back to life.

  • de Blob: Flip, bounce and smash your way past the all-powerful I.N.K.T. Corporation to launch a revolution and save Chroma City from a future without color
  • Long Live Color! Join the Color Revolutionaries in the resistance against Comrade Black and his diabolical array of hot plates, electric shocks, and ink turrets
  • Free The Citizens: Free your friends from a black and white world by painting the city back to life as you dodge ink cannons, flatten I.N.K.T. tanks and outsmart Inky soldiers
  • Multiplayer: Compete to control Chroma City in 4-player split screen in eight different multiplayer modes
  • Save your City: Paint Chroma City’s towering skyscrapers, expansive bridges and massive landmarks in your own style using custom colors, patterns and soundtracks

As mentioned above, de Blob was originally a Wii title, also available on iOS. Last year, the game was also ported to PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It finally rounds out the current generation with a Nintendo Switch release. A sequel was released in 2011 on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.

The latest Nintendo Switch version of de Blob doesn’t have a specific release window, but THQ Nordic promises a 2018 release.
